Petition: DEMAND Panetta’s IMMEDIATE resignation
Leon Panetta ADMITS Obama LEAKS, excuses Obama as ABOVE THE LAW!
Please sign the SOS petition to call for Leon Panetta's immediate resignation as Secretary of Defense. There is no question that Leon Panetta is using a Nixonian defense of unbridled executive privilege, which was proven unconstitutional long ago, to justify the Obama administration’s abhorrent actions. HE MUST RESIGN.

Dear Secrerarty Panetta:
We, the undersigned American patriots, request your consideration of our concerns and your support in attaining their remedy.
Whereas, Special Operations have become a critical instrument in the overall United States national security strategy.
Whereas, Special Operations are directed from the highest levels of the National Command Authority, their successful execution impacts a wide array of U.S. regional security goals and objectives.
Whereas, Special Operations are planned, coordinated, executed and evaluated under the highest requirements for operational security (OPSEC), the breaching of which can impact U. S. security goals adversely, and threaten the lives of our forces and their families.
Whereas, U. S. Special Operations Forces are a finite and precision capability not readily replaceable.
Whereas, Special Operations Forces personnel are constrained by law, regulation, and a sense of duty, honor and country to take all possible actions and measures to protect highly classified, compartmentalized Special Operations plans, reports and post-employment evaluations from release to unauthorized entities.
Whereas, the successful execution of Special Operations is directly dependent upon the efforts of the U.S. intelligence community and the timely articulation, transmission and use of that fleeting commodity.
Whereas, the U.S. intelligence community that supports and is supported by Special Operations must develop, direct and sustain deep cover assets in order to gain timely and accurate intelligence for the successful conduct of Special Operations.
Whereas, breaches in OPSEC by the White House, Members of the Cabinet, the press and the movie industry have, ostensibly for political / campaign reasons, divulged to the public details of Special Operations personnel identity(ies) methods, tactics, techniques and procedures that result in new or improved countermeasures being developed by current and potential hostile adversaries around the world.
Whereas, breaches in OPSEC by the White House and members of the Cabinet, most likely for political reasons, provided information that led directly to the identification of Dr. Jamal Alfridi (whose information on the location of Osama bin Laden led to the successful employment of Special Operations Forces) and subjected him to retaliation and imprisonment in his country.
Whereas, you, the Secretary of Defense, knew the intelligence leaks were coming from President Barack Obama and chose not to investigate and hold the President accountable but instead to unilaterally pardon the President's actions simply because he is President.
Whereas, the bond of trust between the National Command Authorities, Special Operations Forces, and supporting intelligence activities has been severely damaged and must be restored, we, the undersigned, request that you Leon Panetta:
immediately resign your post as Secretary of Defense.
and that the House Oversight Committee recommend criminal charges, when appropriate.
